Oswego Yacht Club, known now as the McCrobie Civic Center and for a time as the Naval Militia Building, is a historic clubhouse building located at Oswego in Oswego County, New York. It was built in two phases; the center section was bgeun in 1914 and completed in 1919 as the yacht club. The east and west wings were added in 1949-50 by New York State when the building was occupied as the New York State Naval Militia Armory and U.S. Naval Reserve Training Center. The original section is a one story Arts and Crafts style building with a walk out basement in the rear and Colonial Revival features. It was designed by noted Rochester architect Claude Fayette Bragdon (1866-1946). It is essentially a rectangular building with a hipped roof. It features a five sided room in the back with a five faceted hipped roof. The wings are two story structures measuring 70.4 feet by 40.4 feet. The city of Oswego acquired the building in 1978 for $50,000 and it is used as a municipal and recreation center.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2010.[1]
